My next book, Communication Genius, is almost finished. It will have really interesting information on a wide variety of areas. Including body language true-facts, why Maslow was wrong, the dangers of PowerPoint, and why turning off your phone could make you smarter.

Good but not great, though it my be TV's fault

This is a good read as always. But there is something missing. Possibly its the unbelievable plot, or it may be the lack of action.

Though I think it may be Tom Cruise's fault. For example, take this quot
